Wimsey Cove Framing and Art is a locally owned and operated quality custom residential and corporate art frame gallery that specializes in shadow boxes, photography and historical maps of cities and states.

Wimsey Cove is located in Edgewater, South Anne Arundel County MD just 2/10ths of a mile south of Mayo Road across from the old Giant Food just south of Annapolis, Maryland.

Local Maryland artists and photographers have limited edition prints on display at Wimsey Cove to purchase and frame.

About Us

The owner, Elizabeth Ramirez, a watercolor artist, has 18 years in the picture frame industry as well as a degree in Studio Art from Rivier College in New Hampshire. Elizabeth has also taught arts and crafts in summer camps and given short courses in various framing techniques.

Se Habla Espanol

She strives to provide a friendly, family-oriented shop where we can work together to find the art and/or frames that fit your décor while focusing on fine art, original photography, original etchings, and reproductions of historic maps and prints.

Bella's Corner

A very unique part of her business is “Bella’s Corner” where children can play while parents are picking out the art, photos, mats, and framing they are looking for.  This corner is named for Isabella, Elizabeth’s daughter.   Features of this corner include toys, games, and DVDs for your children to enjoy. 

At Wimsey Cove, we feel that:

“Through art, children can express the creativity that they will need as adults to cope in this world.”

Maps & Art

Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, formerly in the Market House, is now at 103 Annapolis Street, the “main street” of West Annapolis. In 2007, Elizabeth opened Wimsey Cove Framing & Art in Edgewater. “We will continue our picture framing business there, but we are moving our historic maps and art to the new West Annapolis store,” she said.

The store features historic maps and bird’s eye views of places all over the world, but the emphasis is on making maps of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County available for local history lovers. In particular, we carry reproductions of the plats for many turn-of-the-century suburbs around Annapolis, including the 1890 plat of West Annapolis, the original lay-out of Wardour, and the plans for Woodland Beach and other historic subdivisions. Wimsey Cove also carries National Geographic maps & globes and gifts & books.

Wimsey Cove Featured Artists

Wimsey Cove Maps & Art features Naptown Photo Members.

Meet Maryland, an exhibit by the Naptown Photo Members, is the featured exhibit at Wimsey Cove Maps & Art in West Annapolis. The exhibition of photographs of Annapolis, along our creeks, and in the surrounding area runs until August 2nd. The gallery is open Monday - Saturday: 11am - 5pm • Sunday: 12am - 4pm. Come meet the artists at their reception on June 29th from 1pm-4pm. Light refreshments will be served. Naptown Photo is a photography meet up group inclusive to all photographers from professional to hobbyist. The group’s goal is to foster a passion for photography while spending time together from casual social gatherings to affordable photography workshops. Naptown Photo was created and is organized by Jennifer Casey, a local professional photographer. Over the last year Naptown Photo has grown to over 350 members and has offered almost 100 meet ups.

The Meet Maryland show includes the work of 15 Naptown photographers. Bob Peterson, of Annapolis, likes night photography as shown in his night view of Ego Alley in Annapolis. From Edgewater, Mike Lopes is a commercial photographer moving into more art photography. Photos by Dianne Poole Taylor of Deale captures the landscapes which, as she says, “make you feel so relaxed.” Alan Christianson hails from Baltimore and uses photography to “see anew” what most people without a camera miss. And John Goff of Severna Park seeks out mood-changing sunrises and sunsets and unusual landscapes. Others in the show include Carol Allen, Kerri Jolene, Jennifer Palmere, Robbin Haigler, Koretta Skelton, Sharon Shifflett, Denise Phelps, Jen Graves, Christie Wilson, and Katie Zeglis.

As Jennifer Casey, the group’s organizer who specializes in landscape, nature and portrait photography, points out, “This meet up is a great opportunity for lovers of photography to share not only camera tips and photographic locations but also friendly critiques of each other’s work.”

Wimsey Cove Maps & Art specializes in exhibiting work by Annapolitans and local photographers. In addition, the store features historic maps of Annapolis, West Annapolis, Woodland Beach, North Beach, and Maryland. Owner, Elizabeth Ramirez says that, “we are trying to create a store where the community can find local art and maps and histories linked to nearby communities.”

Permanent Exhibit

We also have another new exhibit, Finding Our Roots on Annapolis Street, which will be on display through the end of May. The exhibit, funded in part by the Four Rivers Heritage Area and West Annapolis Business Affiliation, was created by the West Annapolis Heritage Partnership to illustrate the “can do” attitude of West Annapolis since 1650. Many of the maps used in the exhibit are on sale at Wimsey Cove Maps & Art. Local historians, Virginia Vroblesky and Constance Ramirez, are there on Sundays to talk about the Great Wardour Train Wreck, Luther Giddings’ vineyard, and the witness trees in West Annapolis.
